Ural Thomas is a world-renowned soul legend. He first made his name in the 60s with singles such as ‘Can You Dig It’, ‘Pain Is The Name of the Game’ and ‘Deep Soul’ and has shared stages with fellow soul luminaries such as James Brown, Etta James, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding.

Now, the 82-year-old singer and his showband The Pain have just released their third album ‘Dancing Dimensions’. Capturing the timeless essence of their sound, the upcoming record spans Chicago soul, Sly Funk and West Coast psychedelia all delivered with the outfit’s exuberant penchant for smooth grooves.

“The Right Time, technically the debut from Ural Thomas and the Pain, offers a less obvious breadth of sound, showing a star happily still at his peak even as he nears 80.”
